Fun Palaces 2020

October 3rd and 4th is Fun Palaces 2020 Weekend. Fun Palaces is all about FUN and sharing what we do with our local community. Along with our partners at Sheffield Olympic Legacy Park and the Canal & River Trust, we’ve put together a number of mini Fun Palaces that are within Covid restrictions, but still enable the community to have fun!

Read on for an outline of each event:

Draw Your Own Fun Palace

Word art in a heart shape, using words related to community

Help make your community into a giant art gallery:

  1. Print the Scarecrow template below, decorate the Scarecrow, design a colourful outfit that will stand out and draw attention.
  2. Draw or paint a picture, that tells us what COMMUNITY means to you and how you feel about it.

Display your pictures in your front window to share with your friends and neighbours.

If you can, please take a photo of your pictures and email them to us at or post them on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram and tag us @darnallWB
